Re: The Galaxy Tales - Dirk B.
I have a thought about guilt about killing his mother. Joseph needs to NOT have her in his head. Having conversations with a mother figure after death would help assuage the guilt because he could imply or ask for forgiveness.
Agreed. I simply don't have enough lines for both the mother and grandmother in every Joseph chapter. The grandmother is integral to the 3rd draft, so I'm going to give the mother's few lines to her. I'm probably going to have God visit Joseph as he tries to kill himself. That will probably be his first appearance in v4. He'll appear again after Joseph causes the destruction of New Bethlehem. He'll visit Apollo at least once, when Apollo is about to die aboard the damaged raider that's rapidly losing air.
